    People think of the Crüe as a glam band which is true. Shout was a full on heavy metal album that was a great listen from start to finish.

    I can't remember. I don't think the original incarnation made a bad album, tbh

    Shout at the Devil or Too Fast For Love...Never listened to them after those albums tbh...

    Sure I heard all of their songs on the following albums, and I did like that song called 'Louder Than Hell' though. But I was into 70s rock, metal and thrash...

    Indisputably their best from a hard rock/metal standpoint.

    IMO it was all downhill after the Smokin' In The Boy's Room cover. They lost the dark edge and decided to become a party rock band.

    Shout, Too Young and Live Wire are probably the three best songs the band ever recorded.

    Shout At The Devil was their best work by a large margin:

    Been awhile since I listened to any Crue. However I spent years listening to them. Ironically stopped caring about them once I stopped drinking . Anyhow

    Too fast for love: raw debut album, people rave about it and many consider it their best - not bad, but they released better material later on. IMO. Very punk sounding. 6/10

    Shout at the devil: masterpiece. Not a single bad track. Even the remastered version released later has some good songs added on. 10/10

    Theater of pain: I'm thinking this is 1985? Instead of building in the momentum from satd, the Crue took a step back with this glam metal. Very bland album . Listened to it over and over years ago, doubt I could do the same today. 4.5/10

    Girls girls girls: one of my favorites . Lots of party anthems and overall good CD. 8/10

    Dr feelgood: product of the Crue sobering up. Although their highest seller not one of my favorites 5/10

    Motley Crue: kind of a cult favorite. Different lead singer and a move toward alt. Few good tracks but that's it 3/10

    Generation swine : continued in the alt direction. Took me a while to get used to this album. 7.5/10

    New tattoo: they try to go back to the 80s with this album. Nikki's songwriting is pretty weak on this album. 5/10

    Saints of Los Angeles : final album by them. Very strong album . Really wish they wouuldve realeaed a couple more of these instead of those long farewell tour they were doing towards the end .

    I haven't really listened to much of their stuff since Dr Feelgood. Thanks for the breakdown man
